Winter GRWM: Make-Up, Hair and Outfit!

Monday, December 22, 2014

Hello everyone! Can you believe that Christmas is LESS THAN ONE WEEK AWAY!!! Can you tell I'm excited yet because I really am! With it being my 18th birthday last week and the tree and decorations are well under way around the house, I'm definitely really beginning to get into the full blown Christmas spirit. So today, I thought I would just show you what I like to do on a typical day in Winter when I'm not in college including the current make-up I'm loving and a little outfit of the day post too, so I hope you enjoy!

First off, Winter is all about comfort so for my outfit I opted for this comfy, over sized cable knit cardigan with y'know those jeans with the rips in the knee from Topshop which just about every girl has right now.. Then just to add a little more edge to my outfit I paired it with this vest top from River Island with the words 'It's complicated' written all over it because well, life is pretty complicated sometimes.. Haha, no but seriously to finish off I added this necklace from Topshop which is long-ish with a silver chain and a compass and then I have no idea how to even explain what the next charm is apart from the fact it looks like a feather duster. This clearly adds to the 'complicated' element of my outfit! Then of course, for my shoes I opted for my brogues because I wear these basically everyday.

Outfit Details:
Cardigan - Topshop
Top - River Island
Necklace - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop

Now, can you believe I actually tried with my hair for once? I know, it was a shock to me too! For this hairstyle simply split your hair into a middle parting and begin to curl random sections on either side. This just creates more of a natural look with looser curls rather than tight, packed ones. Once your curls are the way you like them, simply take a small section of our hair towards the front of your head on either side. Twist this section and tie off both pieces with a bobble at the back of your hair. You may wish to add a couple of bobby pins just to make this a little more secure. This is a really cute yet simple hairstyle for the winter which looks like you tried a lot harder than you actually did, I love it! 

For my make-up, I kept it quite simple with a Wintry pinkish glow and minimal bronze. 

Products Used:
Benefit Porefessional

Now, of course it is Winter break so typically of course I had to spend my morning at Starbucks for breakfast then making a few cheeky purchases after that! I opted for a Toffee Nut Latte with a ham and cheese toastie and it was simply devine! 

So I hope you liked this post! Be sure to let me know in the comments down below what you have been loving now that it is Winter break. Are you excited for Christmas?! Because I know I sure am!

Until next time,
Happy Holidays!
